Any device that determines some characteristic of an object or process, e.g., its chemical composition, cellularity, mass, oxygen content, or particle content.

automated analyzer

A chemical instrument to perform assays with a minimum of human intervention.

batch analyzer

An automated chemical analyzer in which the instrument system sequentially performs a single test or multiple tests on each of a group of samples.

continuous flow analyzer

An automated chemical analyzer in which the samples and reagents are pumped continuously through a system of modules interconnected by tubing.

discrete analyzer

An automated chemical analyzer in which the instrument performs tests on samples that are kept in discrete containers.

field analyzer

In visual field perimetry, a device used to assess central and peripheral visual acuity.

parallel analyzer

A discrete automated chemical analyzer that performs a single test on a group of samples within milliseconds of one another.
